The Delicious Wines of Seven Falls Cellars in Washington’s Wahluke Slope

Seven Falls Cellars is a Washington based winery that stands out for its commitment to sustainability and quality. Located on the Wahluke Slope in the Columbia Valley AVA, Seven Falls produces award-winning wines that reflect the unique terroir of this region.

The passion for quality starts with the vineyard. Owners Michelle and Brian Rudin are dedicated to sustainable farming practices, including dry farming and minimal intervention winemaking. The Wahluke Slope's hot days and cool nights provide ideal growing conditions for grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Riesling. The vineyards are planted with low-yielding vines to ensure optimal flavor concentration in each cluster of grapes.

At the winery, Seven Falls employs traditional methods such as open-top fermentation tanks and punching down by hand. Winemakers then carefully select which will be used for blending to create the signature Seven Falls flavor profile. The result is a range of wines that capture the nuances of their terroir while maintaining exquisite balance and complexity.

Seven Falls Cellars has received numerous awards since it first opened in 2005. Their Cabernet Sauvignon was recently awarded a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco International Competition, while their Merlot earned a Platinum Medal at the Seattle Wine Awards. These accolades are further proof that Seven Falls Cellars is dedicated to creating world-class wines from Washington State's special soil and climate conditions.
